CHARITABLE ACT was only beaten a nose at Sandown last time. Gary Moore's charge finished well ahead of previous course and distance winner Sheikh The Reins and gets the nod to go one better. Eager To Bow is back on the same mark as when scoring over track and trip in November and can figure while Hidden Belief has a shout in this grade after taking on better horses at Doncaster last time. King Bertie looks best of the remainder.
